  4. Use the following syntax to run the container image.
    $ sudo docker run --rm --privileged -ti -v /:/hostfs nvfw-dgxa100:20.05.12.3 <command> <[arg1] [arg2] ... [argn]
See the Commands/Argument Summary section below for the list of common commands and argument.

Using the .run File

The update container is also available as a run file that does not require a Docker installation.

After obtaining the .run file, make the file executible.
$ chmod +x nvfw-dgxa100_20.05.12.3_200716.run

Use the following syntax to run the container image.

$ sudo nvfw-dgxa100_20.05.12.3_200716.run <command> <[arg1] [arg2] ... [argn]
See the Commands section below for the list of common commands and arguments.

Command/Argument Summary

The following are the common commands and arguments to use.
  • Show the manufest
    show_fw_manifest
  • Show version information
    show_version
  • Check the onboard firmware against the manifest and update all down-level firmware.
    update_fw all
  • Check the specified onboard firmware against the manifest and update if down-level.
    update_fw [fw] 
    Where [fw] corresponds to the specific firmware as listed in the manifest. Multiple components can be listed within the same command.
CAUTION:
Stop all unnecessary system activities before attempting to update firmware, and do not add additional processing loads while an update is in progress. A high workload can disrupt the firmware update process and result in an incapacitated component.

When initiating an update, the update software assists in determining the activity state of the DGX system and provides a warning if it detects that activity levels are above a predetermined threshold. If the warning is encountered, you are strongly advised to take action to reduce the workload before proceeding with the update.

Fan speeds may increase while updating the BMC firmware. This is a normal part of the BMC firmware update process.

Updating Components with Secondary Images

Some firmware components provide a secondary image as backup. The following is the policy when updating those components:
  • SBIOS: The two images are referred to as active and inactive, where the active is the currenly running image and the inactive is the backup image. The update container can only update the inactive image. After reboot, the updated image becomes the active image. You can perform the update again to update the current inactive image so that both images are updated.
  • BMC: The two images are referred to as active and inactive, where the active is the currenly running image and the inactive is the backup image. The update container can only update the inactive image. After the update is completed, the updated image becomes the active image. You can perform the update again to update the current inactive image so that both images are updated.

3.1. Instructions for Updating Firmware

This section provides a simple way to update the firmware on the system using the firmware update container. It includes instructions for performing a transitional update for systems that require it. The commands use the .run file, but you can also use the container image directly.
  1. Perform a transitional update if needed.

    Depending on the BMC and MB_CEC versions on the system, you may need to perform a transitional update before updating the BMC and SBIOS to the latest versions.

    1. Check if the transitional update is needed.
      $ sudo nvfw-dgxa100_20.05.12.3_200716.run run_script --command "fw_transition.py show_version" 

      The following message appears if a transition update is needed.

      BMC/MB_CEC firmware needs update to Active/Inactive, secure boot mode 
      This is a one-time update required for DGXA100. All future updates require BMC in this mode
      • If the one-time update is required, continue with the next step to perform the transitional update.
      • If the one-time update is not required, then skip to step 2.
    2. Perform the transitional update.
      $ sudo nvfw-dgxa100_20.05.12.3_200716.run run_script --command "fw_transition.py update_fw" 
      $ sudo reboot
    3. Verify that BMC (both images) and the MB_CEC are up to date.
      $ sudo nvfw-dgxa100_20.05.12.3_200716.run run_script --command "fw_transition.py show_version"
  2. Check if other updates are needed.
    $ sudo nvfw-dgxa100_20.05.12.3_200716.run show_version
    • If there is "no" in any up-to-date column for updatable firmware, then continue with the next step.
    • If all up-to-date column entries are "yes", then no updates are needed and no further action is necessary.
  3. Perform the final update for all firmware supported by the container and reboot the system.
    $ sudo nvfw-dgxa100_20.05.12.3_200716.run update_fw all
    
    $ sudo reboot
    Note: The update_fw all command updates the inactive BMC and SBIOS images only. After rebooting the system, the updated images become "active". You can then update the inactive images using nvfw-dgxa100_20.05.12.3_200716.run update_fw [BMC] [SBIOS] --inactive as needed.
You can verify the update by issuing the following.
$ sudo nvfw-dgxa100_20.05.12.3_200716.run show_version

Expected output.

Updating Components with Secondary Images

Some firmware components provide a secondary image as backup. The following is the policy when updating those components:
  • SBIOS: The two images are referred to as active and inactive, where the active is the currenly running image and the inactive is the backup image. The update container can only update the inactive image. After reboot, the updated image becomes the active image. You can perform the update again to update the current inactive image so that both images are updated.
  • BMC: The two images are referred to as active and inactive, where the active is the currenly running image and the inactive is the backup image. The update container can only update the inactive image. After the update is completed, the updated image becomes the active image. You can perform the update again to update the current inactive image so that both images are updated.

Instructions for Updating Firmware

This section provides a simple way to update the firmware on the system using the firmware update container. It includes instructions for performing a transitional update for systems that require it. The commands use the .run file, but you can also use the container image directly.
  1. Perform a transitional update if needed.

    Depending on the BMC and MB_CEC versions on the system, you may need to perform a transitional update before updating the BMC and SBIOS to the latest versions.

    1. Check if the transitional update is needed.
      $ sudo nvfw-dgxa100_20.05.12_2006003.run run_script --command "fw_transition.py show_version" 

      The following message appears if a transition update is needed.

      BMC/MB_CEC firmware needs update to Active/Inactive, secure boot mode 
      This is a one-time update required for DGXA100. All future updates require BMC in this mode
      • If the one-time update is required, continue with the next step to perform the transitional update.
      • If the one-time update is not required, then skip to step 2.
    2. Perform the transitional update.
      $ sudo nvfw-dgxa100_20.05.12_2006003.run run_script --command "fw_transition.py update_fw" 
      $ sudo reboot
    3. Verify that BMC (both images) and the MB_CEC are up to date.
      $ sudo nvfw-dgxa100_20.05.12_2006003.run run_script --command "fw_transition.py show_version"
  2. Check if other updates are needed.
    $ sudo nvfw-dgxa100_20.05.12_2006003.run show_version
    • If there is "no" in any up-to-date column for updatable firmware, then continue with the next step.
    • If all up-to-date column entries are "yes", then no updates are needed and no further action is necessary.
  3. Perform the final update for all firmware supported by the container and reboot the system.
    $ sudo nvfw-dgxa100_20.05.12_2006003.run update_fw all
    
    $ sudo reboot
    Note: The update_fw all command updates the inactive BMC and SBIOS images only. After rebooting the system, the updated images become "active". You can then update the inactive images using nvfw-dgxa100_20.05.12_2006003.run update_fw [BMC] [SBIOS] --inactive as needed.
You can verify the update by issuing the following.
$ sudo nvfw-dgxa100_20.05.12_2006003.run show_version

Expected output.
